Original Syndicate Infiltrates GoG This Thursday

EA's Syndicate reboot is only a month away from release, but if you're a fan of Bullfrog's classic original (and why wouldn't you be?), you'll be pleased to know that the strategic masterclass is headed for a new lease of life. Good Old Games have announced that they'll be releasing the original 1993 game this Thursday with Windows compatibility.

This would normally be cause for celebration, but since other Bullfrog games have been released as mediocre DOSbox versions (including Dungeon Keeper), we'll have to watch and wait to see whether the port passes muster. Still, beggars can't be choosers.

The intro instantly took me right back to 1993!

Forget SWTOR, STO and Skyrim - I'll be playing this :)

When did you last try? It's available to buy for me now :) Guess I will try it here at work during my lunch break.

I completed the first two missions and it was awesome.

It's very playable - works better than the Steam version of XCOM.

The only thing I don't get is what the hell does the voice say when you select an agent?

Sounds like either "syndicate" or "silicon".
